Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 17, 2018

The long and winding case of Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn had all the elements of a story that would seize President Trump's attention. A Green Beret charged by the Army in the killing of a man linked to the Taliban. Thorny questions about America's longstanding entanglement in Afghanistan. And a Fox News program that lauded the officer as a war hero. And so, on Sunday, Mr. Trump announced on Twitter that he would examine the case of Major Golsteyn, using, verbatim, language aired just minutes before by his favorite program, "Fox & Friends."

"We must maintain law and order at the highest level or we will cease to have a country, 100 percent. We will cease to have a country. I am the law and order candidate." - Donald Trump

I guess he's only the "law and order candidate" when it comes to the imaginary crimes of Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump's crimes could fill an entire season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.

God. What have we done? The election of such a person to the Presidency has thrown a full bottle of red wine onto the white carpet of American democracy. The stain will never come out.

This guy's mistake was bringing up the EJK situation during an interview on tv in 2016 after he was cleared following an initial investigation in 2014.

From the initial incident, to bringing it up on tv years after the fact, interesting decisionmaking made by this officer.

Trump still thinks the Central Park 5 are guilty after they were proven innocent.

Now he is stepping into this mess?

Trump's tampering with, interfering with, intervening in, and corrupting an investigation.
What a despicable, wretched excuse for a President. And on the same day this same sorry excuse that sits in the WH calls a cooperating witness a "rat."
